All went very well. Funeral was a fitting tribute to a truly amazing human being.
Today I have done something that I know he would have approved and have entered an off road running race.
Tonight I will spend the evening eating and drinking with a group of people who loved and cherished him almost as much as I did. The funeral reminded me just how many people there are who I think of as family and who consider themselves also to be my family. So it seems right to spend tonight with several of those people having fun.
Going to try and convince my SO to join me if he has time.
Hugs to you all.
I'm sorry for your loss. We've had to deal with a funeral every year for the past 4 years with another one on the way (my uncle is in hospice). I understand all to well how that feels. Enjoy your family, by blood, choice, or heart, and give yourself some time to heal.
